    1.  Commander 1-2, corps 3-6, spec ops not out yet, support 0-3, heavy 0-2
    2.  Fleet are troop and look terrible, commandos are spec ops
    3.  For the sake of filling out 800 points sure run the speeder.  I’d drop it ASAP though
    4.  I never leave home without 3 but two should be fine, again either naked or rotary blaster
    5.  Wouldn’t run saber throw in Luke, his blaster is plenty fine if he can’t get his hands on whatever you need dead.  I am pretty sure I’ll be running Luke and  Leia when she drops.  Luke will be the heat seeking missle he is now and Leia will support the troop spam.  I think the “lucky” trait on Han is actually bad, a 120 point model with no armor and a white defense die is a huge liability.  Would have rather seen just a red defense and no lucky personally.
     
    I am pretty sure Commandos will be a staple in rebel lists when they drop.  I’d almost bet money on that.

    I don’t think the scale will ever be big enough for this to be a 40k alternative.
    Unless they make another system with 10 man squads, reworked points costs and the like and actually push it as a game this will always be a largish skirmish game for me.
    Which is borderline tragic.

    The game might be less swingy than Legion(not totally convinced yet) but the tournament system certainly isn’t(unless of course legion prioritizes points over wins).  
    For me there aren’t enough surprises in Armada, you know as soon as you see lists what your opponent is going to do and what you have to do to either counter it or push through your own strategy.  Feels very linear I guess.
    I realize this comes of sort of fanboyish but I think relegating Legion to nothing more than a fun hangout excuse is a disservice, especially this early into it’s life.

    My rebel lists start with 6 troops and 3 AT-RTs, every time. 
    That is the only way to keep pace with the casualties.  Even losing a unit a turn you are still at three or four units by the games resolution. 
    To be honest the only reason it is six troops and not more is the unit cap.  FFG has done a fantastic job of making vehicles completely irrelevent in this game.  Aside from the AT-ST anyway.

    Darkfine got a reaction from Big Easy in 600 point outing   
    Played a tournament over the weekend at 600 points, the field was a decent mix of both factions, as far as I can tell it was mostly AT-ST Empire and heavy weapon Rebel action with hard points on AT-RTs.
    Most lists had around 4 troopers and upgrades on everything.
    I took Luke, six troopers and three naked AT-RTs. 
    Three of the units had an additional trooper and that was it for the list.  
    I played against an AT-ST list, it butchered stuff but was able to swamp Vader and cripple his squads for the match.  Took the game 5-0
    Next saw a Rebel list with z-6s and blaster cannons everywhere.  His white dice rolls where on the whole pretty good and he had me down to two troops and two AT-RTs by the end of it.  Took the game 5-0
    Last game was against three AT-RTs with flame throwers, 4 troops with one on a z-6 and a naked Luke.  Was concerned the enemy AT-RTs would prove too much for my troop heavy list but was able to tie them up long enough with my Luke and AT-RTs to end the game with them having only fired once.  Took the game 2-1.
    I realize at 800 points things look a little different and at this point would only be able to include a Speeder to continue the “no upgrade” plan until commandos drop but it was still interesting to see how maxing out units played against an upgrade heavy field.

    I mean, the AT-ST can delete units with little effort or concern for its own safety.  It doesn't have to kill everything, just create holes for you to get more points.  I would be seriously hard pressed to not include one in any Empire list I made.

    Darkfine got a reaction from Ghost Dancer in The AT-ST Costs Too Much.   
    There are two big things I would like to point out that you said.
    One, you have never lost one in a fight.  
    That is huge, like absolutely gigantic.  I have never seen it go down in a fight either.  I have seen AT-RTs, Speeders, Luke, Vader and piles of infantry go down.  Have never seen anyone actually kill an AT-ST.  That alone is worth 195 points.
    Two, you say sometimes you can't see anything to shoot with it.  That is a learn to play issue my good man.  Unless you are trying to play Legion on an Infinity board getting an AT-ST LOS blocked out  of a game is operator error 100%.
    At this point in time Luke is the AT-ST's only natural predator and there are a lot of ways to deal with Luke.  If the thing was any cheaper it would legit break the game.

    Darkfine got a reaction from Ghost Dancer in Luck vs Strategy   
    There are actually a fair few ways to mitigate luck with this system, and a lot of options for future releases to go even further if they so choose.  Can't hit anything?  Bring Scopes and aim, getting shot to pieces?  Use cover better and dodge, or prioritize suppressing threats before they can activate.

    No it isn't, it is still a Ryhmer Ball, just with new ships (there was never a "set" Rhymer Ball)
    It isn't a drink or spicy candy, it is a Ryhmer Ball.  No clue who thought it was clever to drop the namesake of the thing and replace it with the latest flavor of the month.

    This looks okay mostly.  Though, I think a heavily invested fighter force will take the punch out of your bombers, and a 5 ship Ackbar list will have that ISD dead inside turn 3.
